Lenovo IdeaPad S9 in Works

Lenovo is preparing a lower-cost version of its IdeaPad S10 netbook for at least some regions, the company said today. The S9 will have the same chassis as the 10-inch model but shrink the screen to 8.9 inches. It will also replace the 80GB hard drive with 8GB of flash storage and ship both with the S10's Windows XP and a special Linux variant. The 1.6GHz Atom processor and 1GB of memory carry over from the larger-screened model.

Which areas will receive Lenovo's less expensive netbook are still unknown, though a Chinese announcement is scheduled for September with shipping in October. The cost of the S9 is set at the equivalent of $419 US in Taiwan versus $582 for the existing S10 and suggests that any US-oriented S9 would ship for well below the $399 price for the S10 in North America.
